Flood Valley Brewery in Chehalis presents Highwater Hilarities: July Edition. Chase Mayers is hosting again, with Josh Chambers, a stand-up comedian, improviser, and half of the award eligible comedy duo “The Ballard Boyz.” He performs at clubs, colleges, and casinos all over the country and has been a featured performer at Treefort Music Festival, Bumbershoot, and the San Diego ComicCon. Your July headliner is Adam Pasi, a Portland comic who is quickly becoming among the most recognized names in Northwestern comedy. Born in Tacoma, and raised on Army bases on the East Coast and in Germany, Adam’s unique outlook on life allows him to craft absurd yet relatable stories, culminating in admittedly ridiculous calls to arms. Adam has appeared on the IFC show “Portlandia” and has performed on the Limestone, Wenatchee, and Bridgetown comedy festivals. The show is from 8-10 p.m. Flood Valley is located at 289 NW Chehalis Ave. Cost is $10.
